MAD, BCN, HAJ, WAW Advice Please

Sat Feb 04, 2006 1:45 am

Hi all,

I am planning a couple of aviation trips and am looking at MAD, BCN, HAJ or WAW.

I have emailed a few photographers and got some good info but I cant email everyone so I thought I would try in the forum as well for a little info.

MAD
How is photography at Madrid? I found a website with info and I have heard some discuss an area reachable my metro or train, is this spot still OK? Will I get an hassle at Madrid? Is a car required for Madrid?

BCN
Is a car a must at BCN and would one day be enough or would I need two days to do the airport justice?

HAJ or WAW
It would be one or the other out of these so just wondering if anyone has any views on which is a better bet in terms of photography locations, ease of access and traffic? I would prefer not to hire a car at either airport but if it is necessary then so be it.

Many thanks for any help you can provide

Cheers

Ben

This map shows all spotting locations at EPWA:

Note that spot 9 and 10 may currently be not available due to construction of a new terminal. Taxi will be much easier and cheaper than renting a car. Or simply use public transport - map of routes around the airport is here:

Here you can check what you would probably see:

Hope that helps.

Since tommorow is the opening day for the new terminals does this mean that the spot out near Barajas will be closed off or security guards start coming around more or will it stay the same? (meaning no hasles)
